Question about 1995 BMW 3 Series
It doesn't sound good, let's hope it is nothing but a thermostat. But,,,, the brown stuff does not sound good. It sounds like oil, If you can get it to a radiator shop, a compression check will tell you if the head gasket is blown, it doesn't take much, one tiny hole will do in an engine. But if the comp check finds a leak, they will tell you exactly where it is, and how much to fix it. It usually runs in the 1 to 2 thousand dollar range, and when they see your car pull in, the cash register goes Kachink, Also, look for steam coming out the exhaust, oil in the water, you already found, and then water in the oil. When the thermostat goes, it usually doesn't do anything but prevent the car from heating up. They get stuck in the open position because they never get cold enough to close. That is here in Florida anyway. Check it out, hope this helps.
